Tool Changer – Sigma Series

DON’T STOP YOUR PRODUCTION LINE SO A MACHINE MECHANIC CAN SWAP TOOLING

Applied Robotics’ Sigma tool changer is a high rigidity and highly durable modular tool changer featuring a large caliber cylinder and its own fee-safe cam latch mechanism scheme. Along with compatible and adaptable general-purpose module structure, we aim at high strength, thinness and weight reduction, and maximize the performance of robot. The tool and utility can be securely attached and detached, and it can be used for a wide range of applications such as spot gun exchange, handling, jig change and so on. In addition, we offer flexible global control solutions (DeviceNet, Profibus, Interbus-S, etc.).

Features and Benefits

  • Unique six-sided design accommodates more utilities
  • A Sigma 8.1, Sigma 5.1 and Sigma 3.1 common profile provides modularity and allows for interchangeability of utility modules
  • Eliminate adaptor plates for lower weight, and increased strength and efficiency
  • Low profile reduces inertial forces
  • Supports wide variety of servo tools and bus communications

Application

  • Spot welding
  • Material handling
  • Machine loading/unloading
  • Mold exchange
  • Docking system
  • Pallet coupling systems
  • Pick-and-place operating
  • Press transfer
